More participants here at Sarcastic Mom Weekly winners

On our way back from Italy to Belgium we stopped in a cute little town shortly before Frankfurt in Germany.

The hotel we found dated from 16 hundred something and had been completely modernized but had kept its original features.

This was our hotel and our room just under the roof (the one with the open window)

The young girl had a lot of work with serving the beer correctly, not too much foam !

The breakfast room was also very cosy with its wooden supports and ceilings

Just besides the hotel was the town hall

and the little streets were very quaint

Unfortunately the church was just in front of our hotel because the bells rang every 15 min ! Bing bing, bing. That was OK but half an hour made already bing bing bing BANG and full hours BANG BANG BANG (immagine at 12 !!) I had to put my ear plugs on and wasn't happy at all with the Vatican !

Even in such a little town there was a Pizzeria !

This town is doll house cute! It is hard to believe it is real.

In photos 3 & 4, what are the branches on the ceiling?

What a beautiful little place...the buildings look like somethink out of a kid's story book. I don't think I'd have liked that clock bonging away all night, either.

Talking of the Vatican, Pope Benedict has just landed in Sydney for World Youth Day...guess we'll get the whole shebang on the news tonight.

This is a lovely town! Looks likes a so quiet place and a beautiful too.
My reaction would be the same with the bells!
Mélissa ne s'adapte pas très bien à la nourriture anglaise mais préfère acheter des p"tits trucs avec son argent de poche! Jolies peluches pour ses deux meilleures amies, un porte clé pour son père, une paire de shoes pour elle...Elle est ravie de faire cet english shopping! En plus c'est les soldes là-bas aussi. Des trucs qu'on voit pas en France! C'est le top!

What a quaint and wonderful town. I bet it was just beautiful. From the pictures, it'd be my kind of place to relax and unwind. Especially with all the beers.

I love that little town!! That would have been fun to be there..but I am not so sure about the bells ringing all of the time. I kind of like it quiet when I sleep!! I am so glad that you had a great time. WOW!! That would be quite the trip for Mike and I!! I would be talking about it forever. Sandy

My dream is to be able to travel various cities in Europe, eating and drinking, laughing and engaging! That's why I love when others share like this. Thank you, Gattina!
